  1. I've been experimenting with painting using rattle cans and such as I've been prepping a new paint job on my PC case. Some guys who paint cars suggested that I remove all the old paint. I would attempt this however, my PC case is steel and I don't wanna deal with any rust or gremlins. As the easiest way would be to just grab some aircraft stripper and remove everything but I'll have to wash it down with water. One thing that has always been a wonder to me is if the old paint actually needs to be removed from a PC case or anything to be repainted? Now, I know about just scuffing up the old paint, apply a primer, base coat color, then clear. I've done that to cars before. It got me thinking though.. The original paint job from the factory is probably as good as a paint job gets, I mean it was made under IDEAL conditions.. It's probably a really good foundation for painting.. IF THE PAINT DIDN'T REQUIRE A PRIMER. What do you guys think?
